A fishing party

Very nice shot Yves. It is nice to see the group of them spread out along the river with the river bank and vegetation showing. Do you know if they gather in big groups like this all summer or just during migration. I actually took a similar picture on Friday with the Cormorant stretched out along the river just before the Lockport dam, I have never seen more than two together.

Thanks Debra. Hope I'll see your shots at the cormorants. These birds use to live in large group along big rivers. We have a group of 6 to 10 at the Drummond dam. They spend all the summer here. They started staying here about 5 years ago. Hope yours willl like your site and do the same. They are nice birds to photograph.

They know how to find a good perch, even in the middle of a river.. smart birds! I can easily believe they're at a briefing on how to get those fish they're all after. They obviously work together on this and you've captured that so well here, together with the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Well seen and captured, Yves!

That bunch of cormorant is there for the summer. It is the first time I append to see them like that. But it is hard to decede between showing the full scenery with the birds quite small, or enlarge just three with only the river.
